Question what cable is this

I'm planning on getting a pioneer head unit which is IPOD compatible (Pioneer DEH-P6000UB known as the 5050 in india i think(i know some one will correct me here if I am wrong))


An extra accessory for this Head unit to make it iPod Compatible is CD-IU50 This looks a lot like the Regular iPod USB Cable. Can someone please clarify.

Mor over on the Page for the DEH-P6000UB it states "
Enjoy your music in your car, whether itís from your CD collection, iTunes or Windows Media music libraries. Connect your iPod (using our optional CD-IU50 cable), or your USB music player directly to the DEH-P6000UB."


Where as on clicking the link for the cable it states " You can connect your iPod to the DEH-P7900UB tuner with this single cable; and then control all functions of your iPod directly from the tuner."

Am totally confused

Some help Please

Looks like a stock IPod cable that Apple sells with their IPods to me, but I may be wrong.

Its the same cable. Your regular iPod cable should work just the same.

The 5050 has a redish sort of glow around the rotary dial.

Expect to pay between 6.5 - 7k for this. VEBmental has paid around 9k for the 6050.

From what I know, all you need to do with the 6000UB is connect its USB port to your standard USB iPod cable and iPod. Thats it.

So this model DEH-P6000 is the equivalent of 6050 in India? (Which I believe is available in grey market at around 7.5k - 8.5K (city specific))

I thought 5050 was in the 6.0 - 6.5k price range?

^^^ Only 2 smilies allowed (smiles no limit)!

The 7950 is the web-content-writer's fault; any iPod-ready HU would be able to use this (or even Apple's) cable.

iPod-ready means that the HU has the plug-and-play function to detect an iPod signature over the USB port and then scan the iPod index. If a disk-drive-emulation signature is found, the HU reads the root directory onwards for available media files.
